Robert Bosch Healthcare Systems, a provider of telehealth systems, and Remedy Health Media, a provider of clinical resources and wellness tools, have partnered to develop and market a suite of web-based products and solutions focused on supporting better patient engagement in telehealth and compliance with medical care. The partnership combines Bosch’s evidence-based telehealth solutions for chronic medical and mental health conditions with Remedy’s design and development of patient engagement models to improve patients’ compliance with medical care and self-management skills.
“Our health management programs support the care of patients with chronic conditions, both in the transitional period post-hospitalization and during longer-term chronic care coordination,” said Dr. Karen Gilberg, M.D., chief medical officer of Bosch Healthcare. “With an increasing number of people using their computers, tablets and smartphones to access information about their health, we believe that a web-based telehealth solution is a ‘must have’ alternative to traditional proprietary devices for a growing number of payers, providers and patients. Web-based remote patient monitoring will allow us to deliver enhanced content and will support improved patient compliance with medical care. Our web-based products will expand on the key elements in our health management programs that have consistently delivered positive clinical and economic outcomes.”
